Jacked (2015-) Issues
Josh Jaffe is living the dream: from suburban schlub to superhero in one easy swallow of a shady Internet drug. This is where his nightmare starts. Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and John Higgins (HELLBLAZER) bring an unflinching humanity and surreal level of detail to this tale of a midlife crisis-with superpowers!
Josh Jaffe has discovered the dark side of super-heroing, but blood on his hands is no match for his addiction. And like any addict, his problems keep piling up. Can he kill the man who's out to kill him? Should he? And what weird physical toll is his addiction taking on his body? Plus: someone discovers Josh's secret.
Eric Kripke (creator of Supernatural) teams up with Vertigo veterans John Higgins (HELLBLAZER) and Glenn Fabry (PREACHER) to bring you a very Vertigo take on the modern superhero in this six-issue miniseries. Josh Jaffe, a neurotic family man mid-midlife crisis, buys an online "smart pill" to increase his focus and jolt him out of his slump. But to Josh's surprise, the pill gives him incredible strength and power-but its cost is that it's extremely addictive. This irreverent and brutally realistic story examines both the mighty highs and humiliating lows of being a real-life superhero.
